I don't think someone who doesn't like the band should do a review. The notes Kellin hits are incredible for a mans full voice. I can't believe someone would complain about that. Also you should do a little more research on the band before saying "All My Heart" is the first romantic ballad SWS has released. Besides the whole acoustic album they released, crawling with slow songs, the fourth track on the previous album, "Let Love Bleed Red" is a very personal piece as well. I haven't had a chance to fully listen to the album enough to diagnose it with my thoughts yet, but from what I've heard, I do like. All incredibly talented musicians, which for me, makes them stand out over other bands.
That's funny, I was going to actually point out exactly what you just said. "Let Love Bleed Red" was by far a "romantic ballad". As well, while I think this was a well-written and fair review, I like to hear the perspective of someone who enjoyed a band's prior work.

My favorite track is If you can't hang.

And overall I love the album and was really suprised by it the first time I listened to it, glad a I gave it a shot. And I as well loathe A skylit drive.

I do recommend this album to any Broadway fans. It's really catchy and I actually enjoy his voice/screams on it.

Speaking of Broadway....I think we've all been patient where is Gentleman's Brawl ?!?!?

That's one of the problems with reviews on AP; they are mostly done by people who have enjoyed the band's previous output, and so are more likely to give an inflated review score. The number of 90+ review scores is disproportionate.
True, but in this case the reviewer admits to not liking the début which can be difficult on the reader.

Is it strange that I enjoy this band, yet loathe A Skylit Drive?

Not really, I don't find them to be very similar.

i loved the last album and did a review that you can read here (i wanted to write more about some of the songs but had to keep it a little shorter haha): http://mindequalsblown.net/2011/05/s...heers-to-this/

let me know what you think.
Great review, not to diss the AP.net reviewer but I much prefer yours. You're obviously a fan of the band and through reading your review I feel like I have a much better idea of how the album is. As well, I liked how you offered several points of interest that I personally had not known (ex: Their debut was supposed to be an EP).

wow. these guys toured with Drop Dead Gorgeous last year and I really didn't give them a shot because I only like DD,G. But seeing as they got 77 i'll give em a listen.

Was that at the Pyknic Partery Tour ? I saw that as well. I like SWS but they majorly dissapointed live since Kellin screamed many of the sung parts which, to me, seemed like a move to fit in more with the heavy bands they were playing with.
